Om författaren

Stuart M. Kaminsky is head of the radio/television/film department at Northwestern University in Illinois. He is also a writer of textbooks, screenplays, and mystery novels. The more popular of his two series of detective novels features Toby Peters. Set in the 1930s and 1940s, the Peters books visa mer draw on Kaminsky's knowledge of history and love of film by incorporating characters from the film industry's past in nostalgic mysteries. Murder on the Yellow Brick Road (1978), for example, features Judy Garland while Catch a Falling Clown (1982) stars Emmett Kelley as Peters's client and Alfred Hitchcock as a murder suspect. His other critically acclaimed series chronicles the cases of Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov. Kaminsky's detailed studies of Russian police procedure combined with aspects of life in Russia have earned the Series an Edgar nomination for Black Knight in Red Square (1984) and the 1989 Edgar Award for A Cold Red Sunrise (1988). Stuart Kaminsky was born in Chicago in 1934 and died in 2009. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Still fun but not as good as the last one.

Very light read but if you are looking for something fun and fast this is it. Double bonus that the Wizard of Oz plays a big part of the back story.

Stuart Kaminsky’s PI, Toby Peters is on the case for Warner Brothers Studios. Seems there is a photo of Errol Flynn in a compromising situation, with a very young girl. Warner Brothers wants to know if it is real or fake. Flynn says it’s a fake. Damage control is desperately needed or Flynn’s career will be down the tubes!

A ransom demands has been made and Toby is to be the delivery boy. Toby is skeptical about being given the original negative when he delivers the money. His suspicions of the exchange being a set-up are confirmed when he is hit over the head at the drop and wakes up to being in the company of a dead body!

As Toby tries to solve the murder and get the original negative, dead bodies keep turning up. Not a good thing.

A romp through 1940s Hollywood and the world of movie studios, with appearances of Peter Lorre, William Faulkner, Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart and more make this book a delight. The turns are sharp and the pace is steady, with humour interlaced with danger.

I’ve read a couple of books in the series and enjoyed them. This was the first of the series, and it did not disappoint.

This was book #8 in the Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov Mysteries. This story took place in the wake of the "fall" of communism. However, much intrigue is played out by the various police/intelligence agencies trying to assume control in the "new" Russia. Too much politics and not enough actual police work/mystery solving. I won't be reading anymore in this series. 305 pages
